On Sunday we commemorate ANZAC Day and remember tens of thousands of brave men and women who have served in the defence force. Those that have fought in wars, served in peacekeeping and natural disasters and helped to ensure Australia can be a free and lucky country.
Townsville is home to the largest garrison in the Nation and as such Sunday’s events are extra special. It’s so much more than just another public holiday, so let’s get together and pay our respects at a dawn service or march. You can find the details of some of the public events here.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been collating stories of courage and selflessness from our community. Here’s a collection of some of these stories.
Sergeant Arthur George Muller
Father Thomas Gard
Flight Sergeant Andrew Mung Perry
Sergeant Todd Langley
Private Horace Woodrow Hilton
Flight Lieutenant Benjamin Kurylowicz
